And apparently released a team captain

That team captain - Anthony Johnson - was actually traded to DC for CB Bradley Sylve (who had a pick six in Week 1)

Basically Johnson didn't want to play for the team anymore after they fired Pepper Johnson

This is the first trade in XFL history

I wasn't home to see it but I have to imagine that the amount of wrestling references made when the brawl broke out was insufferable

I watched a bit. Remember when I said “...I bet the under every week I’d make a shit ton of money”? This looks like the week I should start doing it. After the week 1 high everybody has come down to earth, and we are seeing the real skill of talent on display.

Matt McGloin talking about how they need to completely change the offense at halftime and then throwing a pick 6 in the early part of 3rd quarter is very Matt McGloin

Yeah people saying that Landry Jones might be the best QB in pre-season are choking on those words.  But Steelers fans could have told you that

This isn’t an offensive league, or defensive league. This is an incomplete league.

While the Defenders are clearly the best team in the XFL right now, this may have been the most impressive thing yesterday

4th Quarter of LA/Dallas has been pretty awesome - including the first converted 3 point conversion.

Minute left, 7 point game with a 6.5 spread and 2.5 under the o/u is a pretty good "keep the gamblers hooked" set up.

Yeah, these scores seem a little sketchy.

So Far Hou vs. STL has been a Shootout. 

Of Course Matt Jones messes it up not getting 2 yards.

Are you insinuating that s respected promoted of professional wrestling would dare even think of fixing football games?

I really wished I watched the XFL games where Ventura got into a worked feud with a coach, and seen the worked games.

I hope people were watching today's games, because those were both good, close, and exciting. Kind of thing that can be built on.

St Louis/Houston was the game of the week for sure. Houston caught a break with an offside that wasn't called and on the play they returned a Jordan T'aamu INT inside the STL 5. 

PJ Walker looks pretty legit though.

I have never seen anyone hate something as much as Mike Florio hates the XFL

There are folks here who probably hate something close to that much

Y'all need to stop taking things so literally

But - yeah - Florio hates the XFL

Every single article has a negative spin (and headline)

My recent favorite. DC DREW 12% LESS FANS!!!!

So instead of over 17K they drew 15K. I think the XFL is going to be just fine with that right now Mike.
